Kerry: Airstrikes on Assad will be “Unbelievably Small”
Don’t forget to announce where and when also.
Check it out:
The American people are already deeply suspicious of launching military airstrikes against the Assad regime. So I can’t imagine comments like these are going to help the current administration win them over:
Secretary of State John Kerry said an “unbelievably small, limited” military strike will be enough to halt Syria’s use of chemical weapons and hasten a political settlement to the 2 1/2-year civil war.
As Congress got set to debate a U.S. intervention, Kerry sought to reassure the public that the Obama administration won’t let a Syrian campaign evolve into a years-long commitment with ground troops, like the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
“We’re not talking about war, we’re not going to war,” Kerry said in a press conference in London today after a three- day mission to Europe. He spoke of a “limited, very targeted, very short-term effort.”
